Publisher's Summary

A likely tail. He was a stringy mongrel, wandering the streets of the city, driven by a ravenous hunger and hunting a quarry he could not define. But he was something more. Somewhere in the depths of his consciousness was memory clawing its way to the surface, tormenting him, refusing to let him rest. The memory of what he once had been.

James Herbert was one of Britain's greatest popular novelists and our #1 best-selling writer of chiller fiction. Widely imitated and hugely influential, he wrote 23 novels which have collectively sold over 54 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages.

Born in London in the forties, James Herbert was art director of an advertising agency before turning to writing fiction in 1975. His first novel, The Rats, was an instant best-seller and is now recognised as a classic of popular contemporary fiction. Herbert went on to publish a new top ten best-seller every year until 1988. He wrote six more bestselling novels in the 1990s and three more since: Once, Nobody True and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Herbert died in March 2013 at the age of 69.

    "A charming story with a great narrator "

    A charming story with a great narrator. My dog, Jeffie, made me listen to it twice more. Which really wasn't a problem since it's such a delightful story.

    Story
    "A dog's life"

    I have always loved this book having read it about five times and this narration brings it to life. James Herbert has imagined a dog's life very well and the plot almost becomes irrelevant. Whether you listen in one go or in short bursts makes no difference as it is very easy to follow. Congratulations to Damian Lynch for his subtle characterisation.

    Story
    "Not what you might hope for"
    Would you try another book written by James Herbert or narrated by Damian Lynch?

    I love James Herbert but this story is so far from his normal genre.


    Has Fluke put you off other books in this genre?

    Not really.


    What three words best describe Damian Lynch’s performance?

    Very good. Clear and concise as usual.


    Was Fluke worth the listening time?

    I don't think so. Not what you'd expect from James Herbert.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth avoiding!
